Words unsaid are louder in the silence. Screaming, knowing our compliance.
The bitten tongue, bleeds of guilt. Our sense of moral direction wilts.
A pain we will never feel, never given a chance to heal.
In the hands (of those) no different to our own.
Systemic oppression, objectified obsession. Still many viewed as a possession.
The pain ignored, will intensify. Accepted norms, few are willing to defy.
Lilith was punished for having her own mind. Seen as sin, time after time.
Bearers of the womb suffer this fate. Will they escape this oppressive hate?
Exiled from sanctuary. We enable this reality.
WE ARE GUILTY.
